NAME

       gendef - DLL export extractor

SYNOPSIS

       gendef [options] <DLL>

DESCRIPTION

       gendef  dumps DLL export information from 32- and 64-bit Windows executables (respectively
       PE32 and PE32+ executables).

OPTIONS

       -      Dump to stdout

       -h, --help
              Briefly describe the syntax and options.

       -a, --assume-stdcall
              Assume functions with ambiguous calling conventions use stdcall.

       -I, --include-def-path <path>
              Add additional search paths in which to look for hint .def files.

       -f, --no-forward-output
              Don't output forwarders.

OUTPUT

       By default gendef writes the DLL export  information  to  a  file  named  after  the  DLL,
       replacing .dll with .def.

KNOWN ISSUES

       For  32-bit  DLLs, gendef cannot detect if a function with no return value (void) exported
       by a DLL uses stdcall or cdecl. Two workarounds are available: either use the "-a"  option
       to  force  stdcall calling conventions, or generate .def files for any DLLs the DLL you're
       interested in depends upon. gendef will  read  other  .def  files  found  in  the  working
       directory to determine the calling convention in use.

       64-bit DLLs are not affected, since they only use a single calling convention.
